Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women throughout the US. With endless treatment plans and countless medications on the market, it can sometimes feel like there’s no end in sight. Fortunately, there’s a more permanent solution for endometriosis symptoms.

What Is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery is led by a surgeon who uses mechanical arms with tools and a high-definition camera to view the surgical site and perform many complex procedures. While seated, a surgeon can evaluate the surgical area in precise detail and use the robotic arms complete with miniature tools to perform surgery.
With the help of this system, the surgeon can control each movement more precisely than compared to traditional surgery. Contrary to what it may sound like, the robot is never in control during robotic surgery; the surgeon directs the movement of the tools each and every time.
At Endometriosis Treatment Center of America (ETCOA), we use the innovative da Vinci robotic surgical system for many surgeries like hysterectomy, excision of endometriosis, and others. Our surgeons and the entire team on the Da Vinci system, and have undergone extensive training in robotic surgery to provide the highest standard of patient care.
What Are the Benefits of Robotic Surgery?
Generally, robotic surgery is minimally invasive, which means tiny incisions are made to reach the irregular tissues. A minimally invasive surgery has various benefits, including:
- Less bleeding
- Minimal recovery time
- Fewer complications
- Smaller scars
What Robotic Surgeries Does ETCOA Perform?
At ETCOA, we are dedicated to helping you find relief from endometriosis, pelvic pain, and other ailments. To do this, we utilize robotic surgery so that you can get back to living your life to the fullest as quickly as possible.
Robotic Excision of Endometriosis
The excision of endometriosis involved removing the lesions of endometriosis commonly found on the bladder and fallopian tubes. This procedure allows healthy tissue to be better maintained and flourish without the irregular cells caused by endometriosis. Excision of endometriosis can provide relief no matter your life stage, but it can be exceptionally beneficial for women who desire to become pregnant later in life. Robotic surgery can help maintain a regular pelvic structure, which can increase the odds of pregnancy.
A robotic hysterectomy can minimize recovery time and is less invasive than traditional methods. While it may seem drastic, removing the uterus can significantly improve symptoms of endometriosis. Depending on your needs, other organs in the reproductive system can also be removed, such as the fallopian tubes and ovaries. However, before a hysterectomy, our team will meet with you numerous times to discuss your desired outcomes.
Robotic Excision of Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are growths that appear on a woman’s uterus, often during her childbearing years. While uterine fibroids rarely develop into cancer, they can cause pelvic pain, heavy and long menstrual cycles, and other unwanted symptoms. With robotic excision of uterine fibroids (myomectomy) at ETCOA, we can remove these pesky fibroids with minimally invasive methods.
